Bahamas Press was the only news team live on the scene last night and what transpired tells you Nassau crime woes have not diminished.
The two occupants began their high-speed gun shooting drama in a white “Honda” that was travelling east “the wrong way” on Shirley Street around 2am this morning.
However an “Enforcement Unit” that patrolled the area and saw two men acting suspiciously in the area and started chasing the car.
The car was later tracked into the Step Street area of Fox Hill in the area of PLP headquarters with the engine “hot” and running. The occupants fled into the bushes and once again opened fire on police officers.

Suspect number one hit in the hail of gunfire was 40-year-old Richard Fowler of Chapel Street off Bernard Road. He, you might remember, was the man who was captured by defense force officers in a Haitian sloop with Dingy Pratt [now dead] some years back.
